Outpatient model delivers high quality, convenient care for Cape Cod patients
HYANNIS, Mass. — The Vascular Care Group (TVCG) is celebrating the eighth-year anniversary of its first vascular care center in Hyannis, MA. TVCG is a fast-growing practice that currently has four vascular centers and five satellite offices, specializing in minimally invasive, outpatient vascular procedures and comprehensive vascular care. Opened in 2013, the Hyannis center has provided the Cape Cod community with state-of-the-art treatments for a wide range of peripheral vascular and venous conditions, and has been an anchor for the outpatient care movement in New England.
Daniel Gorin, M.D., RVT, FACS is the lead physician at the Hyannis clinic, and one of the founding partners of TVCG. He has performed thousands of office-based vascular procedures. He was a charter member of the Outpatient Endovascular and Interventional Society (OEIS) and is a national leader in advocating for outpatient vascular care.
“The last eight years have shown the benefits and staying power of outpatient care for vascular disease,” said Dr. Gorin. “We put the patient at the center of our care model. In addition, our physicians get to work in an environment that lets them focus on what they were trained to do: take great care of patients. This lets us attract the best vascular specialists, ensuring that our communities and our hospitals have top notch vascular care.”
There have been nearly 100,000 visits to the Hyannis center since it opened. Over 16,000 patients have received care in the center, and more that 1,600 procedures have been performed in the outpatient interventional suite. By decentralizing care and managing conditions that do not require treatment in an emergency department, outpatient clinics help hospitals run more efficiently while providing patients with streamlined service. Access to outpatient care also decreases the financial burden on our healthcare system by lowering costs for patients and payer networks.
Furthermore, Dr. Gorin and his team have performed more than 1,600 surgeries at Cape Cod and Falmouth Hospital during this period. “We are committed members of the medical community in Cape Cod. Every day we partner with our hospitals; we provide emergency call coverage and perform surgeries in an in-patient setting whenever that is the best treatment for our patients.”
In 2017 the Outpatient Endovascular and Interventional Society (OEIS) established a national registry to collect data on the safety, efficacy, and quality of the care that outpatient centers provide for patients with peripheral vascular disease. A study was recently published that reviewed the registry data based on nearly 20,000 peripheral endovascular interventions performed in these centers. It showed strong safety indications with extremely low rates of overall complications (0.62%) and major adverse events (0.51%), validating the value that outpatient vascular centers bring to patient care.
